If your synonolgy does not show the DSM 5.0 update, follow this guide to update manually. I can not show all the step pictures, as I have already updated it, but the steps are very simple:
Log in your synology, go to the “Control Panel” and under the system section click on “DSM Update”.
When I check for automatic downloads, my Synology could not detect the new DSM 5.0, so I updated manually. If your synology detected the new DSM version, just click on the download button and your Synology will download the new version for you. Otherwise follow the steps below:
Go to Synology Download Center select the number of bays and model and download the latest version:
Save it on your computer and go back to your synology and in the “Update and Restore” and click on “Manual DSM update” (OBS! the picture is from the new DSM):
Browse to where you downloaded the file and click “OK”. (OBS, new layout shown on picture)
OBS! You can NOT go back to the previous version after the upgrade.
The upgrade will start and it will take between 10-20 min.
Once the installation has been completed, you need to Restart your Synology.
After you re-start your synology, you will be welcomed with a really nice looking login page:
and after login you will be asked to set up your ConnectID:
I skipped the steps hoping that my previous settings would still be there and certainly they were, so it is up to you, if you want to configure ConnectID or just leave your settings as you had them before.
Once you have done that, you will be asked to update all your apps:
Navigate to the package center (the colorful shopping bag):
And click on “update all” (in the picture they are already updated):

and enjoy your brand new user interface, Well done Synology!!
Note, as you can see here, Synology noted that I already had a quickconnectID and saved it for me:
If you want to update your QuickConnectID on DSM5.0, follow these instructions.
